After operating in Cambodia for 14 years, Chinese apparel manufacturer Shenzhou International Group Holdings recently broke ground for constructing of a new $150-million garment factory, called Marvel Garment Co., in the Phnom Penh Special Economic Zone on the city outskirts. The factory is scheduled to be completed in March 2021 and will create 17,000 jobs.

Lt. Gen. Hun Manet, deputy commander-in-chief of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces, and Chinese Ambassador to Cambodia Wang Wentian attended the groundbreaking ceremony, according to a Chinese news agency report.

The firm is now the biggest textile manufacturer in Cambodia, with an export value of $440 million in 2018 and employing 11,500 Cambodians.

"On this basis, we decided to make full use of the factory's experience in Cambodia to further expand the production capacity and facilities in Cambodia," he said.

Shenzhou has grown to be one of Nike's largest and most important apparel suppliers, said Nike's vice president Mark Griffie. (DS)
